defying gravity - Wicked

I went to see Wicked for my Birthday and indeed it was awesome!!! The song “Defying Gravity” really stayed with me… I’ll blog about it later, but I just wanted to share some of the lyrics here.

Lyrics from “Defying Gravity” in the Brodway Musical Wicked

Something has changed within me

Something is not the same

I’m through with playing by the rules

Of someone else’s game

Too late for second-guessing

Too late to go back to sleep

It’s time to trust my instincts

Close my eyes: and leap!

It’s time to try

Defying gravity

I think I’ll try

Defying gravity

And you can’t pull me down!


Can’t I make you understand?

You’re having delusions of grandeur:


I’m through accepting limits

‘Cuz someone says they’re so

Some things I cannot change

But till I try, I’ll never know!

Too long I’ve been afraid of

Losing love I guess I’ve lost

Well, if that’s love

It comes at much too high a cost!

I’d sooner buy

Defying gravity

Kiss me goodbye

I’m defying gravity

And you can’t pull me down:
